Monster Mash

Samantha Power, one of the Saint's foreign policy advisers and cheerleader for humanitarian slaughter, told a Scottish newspaper that Hillary "is a monster, too — that is off the record — she is stooping to anything . . . The amount of deceit she has put forward is really unattractive." Naturally, being a Saint adviser, Power took it all back, apologizing profusely for essentially telling the truth.

But then, that's what American political discourse is all about: avoiding the truth as much as possible, especially if you're part of a major presidential campaign. Not a startling observation, I know, but it helps to have it fleshed out now and again, and Power's statement did this nicely, if all too briefly.

Fact is, Power's correct. Hillary Clinton is a monster who will stoop to anything, urged on by her equally repellent husband and her ghastly advisers. What's more, a large number of liberals not only know this, they openly accept it, and will reward Hillary with votes should she somehow wrench the nomination from Obama. So why apologize?

Now, if Power had added to her "monster" blast that the best way to deal with Hillary is to have NATO bomb her campaign for 78 days, then have her arrested and taken to the Hague for a war crimes trial, it would at least be true to form. Of course, I'm not comparing Clinton's campaign to Milosevic's Serbia, simply because the Clintons have much more blood on their hands than did the Balkan strongman. And if Milosevic deserved his fate . . .

LOOKEE HERE: Power has now resigned from the Saint's inner-circle. Tough break. Hope she does okay with that Harvard gig.
